(please ignore the rampant typos in this post. I blame the iPad)
Every year I resolve to not make any new resolutions, mostly because I'm really bad about keeping my resolutions. Ironically, one year, I resolved to follow through on things...it lasted for a little while, 'til I got bored with following through.
But I'm all about turning over a new leaf and trying to improve (at least that's what I tell myself so I can sleep better at night), so this year I'm going to go ahead and make so more resolutions. 12 of them, to be exact.
1. Swear less. I have a mouth like a wounded pirate and have a really difficult time censoring myself. But it's gotten so bad that even The Nugget, whose second word was "shit", has asked me to curb the cursing. So, I am going to endeavor to get more creative with the english language, in an effort not to swear anymore. Or less. Definitely less.
2. Honor the physical restrictions in my body and eat as organically and healthily as possible. I am going to make The Trolls follow suit.
2a. Resolve to be okay with The Trolls hating me for this.
3. Consume less. This will go hand in hand with another resolution - to be more creative - but this resolution is about finding creative ways to get the things I need, like laundry detergent, by making them rather than buying them.
4. Get more active. I want to commit to an exercise routine, like a walk at night or yoga, so I get off my tush for a fewe minutes a day.
5. Commit only when I can, so that I can follow through on my commitments.
7. Constantly work on my life list and put sone happy little check marks up o there.
8. Live creatively and find excuses to create just about every day.
9. Fear less and don't let fear hold me back from seizing every opportunity that comes my way.
10. Be more whimsical. I want to dance with faeries and have tea with talking worms.
11. Have taken steps toward quitting smoking, so I can quit by the beginning of 2012.
12. Constantly be grateful and express that gratitude frequently.
